Submitting Payday Report Files
Unless you have specifically registered with the IRD to use Payday Filing prior to the 1st of April 2019 start date, then you should not attempt to lodge any Payday Reports. Until this date, please continue full-filling your reporting requirements using exists processes and reports (e.g. IR348).
To test a Payday Report submission prior to the start date and without enrolling, please use the test upload facility mentioned below.
Any files/reports you generate will need to be uploaded through myIR in the Payroll returns account (this account will only appear once you've opted into Payday Filing). You can submit files through the File return or File transfer link. From here, the process is similar to ir-File.
Alternatively, if you have smaller pay runs, you can use the IR's onscreen data entry method in myIR in the Payroll returns account.
